Hermeneutics - Pitfall of Nationalizing It's one of the most well known verses in the Old Testament: "If My people who are called by My name..." 2 Chronicles 7:14. Many Christians take this verse and apply it to the United States or whichever country in which they happen to reside. It has become a popular verse both in the realm of religion and that of politics. Does this verse encompass the United States as, for example, Joseph Farah asserts? Can we take promises God made to Israel... Topic: Hermeneutics
Hermeneutics - Pitfall of Generalizing One of the most common mistakes people make in biblical hermeneutics is to assume that an event or promise recorded in Scripture is to be considered normative for Christians today. The Apostle Paul went to Heaven so why can't we? People were being healed in the New Testament and even the dead were being raised so why shouldn't we expect these things today? Many have made Jeremiah 29:11 their life verse and churches put this verse on their signs outside so... Topics: Justin Peters, Hermeneutics
In this program we continue our study into Hermeneutics: How to properly read an interpret God's Word. We will look at the steps of Preparation and Observation. Regarding preparation, we must acknowledge the unique spiritual nature of the Bible and seek guidance from God's Holy Spirit. Regarding Observation (of the text) we must ask some fundamental questions including: Who is the author? For what purpose did he write? Who were the recipients? All of these questions will help us arrive not at... Topics: Hermeneutics, Bible Study
Hermeneutics - part 4: In this program we continue our study into Hermeneutics. We will begin looking at some common mistakes people make in interpreting God's Word. This week we will look at the pitfall known as Isolationism, more commonly referred to as "Proof Texting." In this, people will take a verse out of its intended context to come to a meaning foreign to the text and preferred over the intended meaning. I will give 3 examples (one from Andrew Wommack, one from Experiencing... Topics: Justin Peters, Hermeneutics

Hermeneutics - Appropriation In our series on Hermeneutics we have looked at some of the fundamental principles of how to rightly divide the Word of Truth and have examined some of the common pitfalls, mistakes, that people make in interpreting Scripture. hopefully, we have gained some knowledge in the last few months. In today's program we will look at Appropriation. In other words, what do we do with the knowledge that we now have? Head knowledge is good and needful, but unless it is...

Hermeneutics - Proclamation Well, this program wraps up our series on Hermeneutics. Hopefully we have gained some knowledge and are appropriating that knowledge. So now what? Now it is time to proclaim that knowledge. In Ezra 7 we see that the prophet "studied the law of the Lord, practiced it, and taught it to Israel." This is the proper order. We should study, practice what we know and then teach it - proclaim it - to others. Topics: Justin Peters, Hermeneutics, Christian Living
Experientializing We continue our look into Hermeneutics by examining the pitfall known as Experientializing. This occurs when we interpret the Bible by what we experience. Many people, for example, believe in a private prayer language because they have experienced it. Experientializing can also occur when we take an historical event in Scripture and assume that because it occurred in biblical days it should be experienced by believers today as well. For example, Gideon set out a fleece to know... Topics: Justin Peters, Hermeneutics, Bible Study
Cutting It Straight With God's Word, part 2 In this program we continue our study in biblical hermeneutics by looking at four of the broad based attacks on Scripture: Higher Critical, Cultural, Cultic and Hypocritical attacks. We will define them and talk about how they are manifested in both our society and churches. Then we will take a bit of a turn and we will talk about Sword Selection. In other words, which Bible translation should I use? There are so many translations out there from which... Topics: Justin Peters, Hermeneutics, Bible Study

This movie was composed as a hermeneutical reflection for a New Testament exegesis project based on Mark 15:22-39. This text contains Mark's account of the crucifixion of Jesus.

A common mistake that people (and many preachers, unfortunately) make is that they will use the correct biblical terminology but assign a different meaning to those terms. This is the fallacy known as "Redefining." In this program we will look at 3 examples of how people redefine the biblical terms; namely hell, repentance, and foreknowledge. If Hell a real place and is it really separation from God? Is repentance just a change in mind? Is God's foreknowledge simply Him looking down...

Hello friends - there was a mix-up on this week's program. I sincerely apologize for a repeat program being posted. We should be back on track now. The move to Idaho has left me most unorganized. At any rate, let's continue our study into biblical hermeneutics. It's one of the most well known verses in the Old Testament: "If My people who are called by My name..." 2 Chronicles 7:14. Many Christians take this verse and apply it to the United States or whichever country in which they... Topics: Discernment, America is a Christian Nation, hermeneutics

Episode 1, in which we discuss the miracle of the longest day recorded in the book of Joshua and also discuss the motivation for this podcast. Topics: Bible, atheism, hermeneutics, Joshua 10, biblical interpretation.
This 25-minute Bible study answers the question of whether the cosmic signs preceding Christ's second advent (as mentioned in Matt. 24: 29) are to be taken symbolically, that is in a figurative sense. Examining key passages in the Old Testament, Brian Simmons brings out the literal rendering of the text, and shows that the Preterist interpretation is a hoax.

This article examines whether Zechariah 14, a much contested passage, supports a Preterist view of eschatology. Our conclusion is that it does not, and that it constitutes one of the main bulwarks of Pre-Millennialism.

This short podcast examines the Biblical concept of Sola Scriptura against the Hyper-Preterist claim that orthodox Christians depend on human authority to bolster their teachings. Brian Simmons shows that a proper application of Sola Scriptura, according to Protestant hermeneutics, results in a repetition of doctrinal truth, whereas Hyper-Preterist premises create a vacuum perception â thus frustrating the foundation of Sola Scriptura.

This paper traces the attempts by the philosopher Robin George Collingwood to answer the question: How does one change the course of modern thought? The description of Collingwood's work is structured around three of the philosopher's books that represent a unified attempt to solve the problem. The three books cover a span of over 10 years and, while varied in their stated objectives, when taken as a whole represent one purpose. Collingwood's philosophy developed from his attempt to unify... Topics: ERIC Archive, Epistemology, Hermeneutics, Higher Education, Historiography, History, Intellectual...
Cognitive-learning theories hold a unique place in history: they explore the depths of the mind from the perspective of process. This paper discusses the history of cognitive-learning theories and how they grew to shape the way one perceives, organizes, stores, and retrieves information. The paper, after providing a definition and synopsis of cognitive theory and its basic concepts, turns to the theories' philosophical foundations, beginning with Plato. The psychological foundations of the... Topics: ERIC Archive, Cognitive Psychology, Epistemology, Hermeneutics, Learning, Piagetian Theory

Published book concerning the development of a total approach to musical experience in a multimedial sense. The music of Bali is the primary example and each of the four chapters presents a different way of looking at music. The primary premise on which the work is based is that firstly the way one experiences music can influence the way one experiences reality and that that the way one experiences music is essentially related to the complex social processes involved in its education. Music is... Topics: epistemology, ethnomusicology, episteme, text, hermeneutics, textuality, Bali, Java, Gamelan
